G-SHOCK announces the release of the GSW-H1000, a G-SQUAD PRO smartwatch powered by Wear OS by Google and packed with functions that help you stay fit using activity goals and fitness tracking. The GSW-H1000 is the latest addition to the sporty G-SQUAD line of shock-resistant G-SHOCK watches.
Built to offer all the unique, original shock resistance of a G-SHOCK, plus water resistance, the GSW-H1000 also includes a microphone, charging terminal and more. Even while using glass thick enough to ensure 200-meter water resistance, the screen still facilitates smooth touch-sensitive control.
The case back, made of titanium, ensures excellent corrosion resistance and has a titanium carbide finish to provide enhanced abrasion resistance.
The Casio original app built into the watch provides support for 15 activities and 24 indoor workout options – Up to 8 original indoor workouts can be added to supplement the 24 preloaded options.
In addition to an optical sensor to measure heart rate, the watch has a compass, altitude/air pressure sensor, accelerometer and gyrometer. This hardware capability, employed along with the GPS location information the watch acquires from satellites, enables the watch to capture data such as route traveled, distance and speed — all very useful for people engaged in a broad range of sports.
With Wear OS by Google, the GSW-H1000 comes loaded with a variety of Google apps and services designed for the watch. Users can get help on the go from Google Assistant and track important activity metrics with Google Fit. They can also choose from thousands of apps available on Google Play and access important information at a glance, like messages and phone calls, notifications, agenda, weather forecast, and more.
Various logs useful for training — from activity history and analysis to progress reports and more — are easy to track thanks to the G-SHOCK MOVE smartphone app’s data management features.
The all-new Sensor Overlay function allows users to combine video and still images of their activities with data captured by the watch in order to create layered visual media to share on social media.
The watch’s dual-layer display combines a monochrome, always-on LCD for time display and a color LCD for high-definition display of maps, sensor data and more.
The three-tier display layout also enables customization, with hundreds of different data display possibilities and the option of analog display as well. This display flexibility makes the watch easily adaptable for use in all sorts of settings. Just use the special “CASIO’S APPS” menu to switch among various functions, and then intuitively swipe to operate.
These G-SQUAD PRO is now available at G-SHOCK MBS Premium store and online at S$999.
